Erinn Westbrook, who also starred in The Glee, is all set to join Riverdale season 5. Know everything about her character and the twist and turns in season 5.
Westbrook will be joining The CW’s Archie Comics-based drama Riverdale as Tabitha Tate, the ambitious granddaughter of Pop Tate. According to the sources close to makers, Erinn will be joining the cast as a series regular. The owner of Pop’s Chock’s lit Shoppe, Terry Pop Tate (Played by Alvin Sanders), now has an “ambitious and entrepreneurial” granddaughter. The latter will take over his diner and turn it into a franchise. The official announcement of her character was made by the casting crew last month.
The situation puts question on Pop Tate’s character, whether there will be some tragedy with him, or does he retire? Although it does sound quite ordinary for the town of Riverdale. Riverdale is anything but ordinary with events like organ-harvesting cults, serial killers, and the Voyeur recreating gruesome events on tape.
